Jesus’ Special Days


   Jesus did not nail His special days to the cross because He still observed them Himself after His death on the cross.


     “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall Proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.”

Leviticus 23:1,2 

“In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD's passover.”  

Leviticus 23:5

     At the supper with the disciples Jesus said He would not drink of the cup until He drank it with them in the kingdom.  This tells us that the unfermented grape juice, which is a symbol of Christ’s blood, would still be a reminder of His death in the kingdom of heaven when sin is gone.  Jesus also told us to have the communion service with the grape juice and unleavened bread, and foot washing to show His death till He comes.  These symbols are still telling us of Christ’s death after the cross.  

     The unleavened bread was used for the whole week of the feast and there was to be no leaven found in their houses.  Jesus had no sin. Leaven is a symbol of sin.  We are still asking God to forgive and cleanse us of sin after the cross.

     Unfermented grape juice is representing Christ’s pure blood, shed for us.  It was not spoiled at all, to be a symbol of Jesus body that saw no corruption.

     “The broken bread and pure juice of the grape are to represent the broken body and spilled blood of the Son of God. Bread that is leavened must not come on the communion table; unleavened bread is the only correct representation of the Lord's Supper. Nothing fermented is to be used. Only the pure fruit of the vine and the unleavened bread are to be used.”
